Regarder et voir


Interweaving fragments of three memories, Regarder et voir is a journey through time and space. The perspective of the streets, the forms of the buildings, the shadows of passer-by, the rustling of the trees and the movement of the clouds all evoke lost happiness.

Marissa Viani Serrano films three people who experienced moments of grace on the site of those past epiphanies, in an attempt to relive those moments with them.

Can a phenomenon as intimate and inexpressible as grace be communicated? This question which obsesses the director is at the heart of Regarder et voir, a film in which the camera never settles, seeming to flutter around the protagonists as they contemplate something that constantly eludes us.

Is it the barking of the dogs, the hasty steps of the walker happening to pass the lens, the blue of the sky or the expanse of earth around the path that compels the mysterious pilgrim?

No answer, just a few clues picked up here and there by Marissa Viani Serrano who, in her quest for that moment when things issue forth, takes us with her on a promenade between the narrator’s Combray and the countryside of Lord Chandos.

To the team of the movie, my family, my companions and the staff of Fresnoy, and all the inhabitants of the North.
